SOME HOW I missed posting yesterday--even though I was on the computer a couple times--not a great way to start off a New year!!!!!!!
BUT guess "how" I saw the New Year in ????? Yep, I was on the Internet ordering some supplies (OK--more fabric!!!!!)
I did get the newest BOM pattern prepared to start from tozzscorner.blogspot.com It is a 6 month one and has applique and embroidery to it--so pop over and check it out---and I did get some of it started!!!!
Then I got the First Friday Freebie of a snowman all traced to stitch and another snowman embroidery work one all traced--so I started the new year off --okay!!
OH and I spent New Year's eve day finishing up a knitting project--I had started this shawl months ago---
I did it for my rocker mostly as sometimes I need something behind my neck and to wrap around my shoulders!!!
Today a girl-friend "kidnapped" me and we went to town and did some shopping--I needed a bag of the walnut crushed shells for pin cushions--stopped at Staples to turn in some ink cartridges for credit on there recycle plan (you get $3.00 credit for each one and I turned in 6 today!!!) Stopped at K-mart and I picked up 3 dish towels--then we went to Wendy's for lunch--after lunch we stopped at a Quilt shop and this is what I got--
The Christmas cardinals were on sale --got 1 3/8 yds as it was what was left on the bolt--got 2 fat quarters of civil war prints, and 1/2 yd of a civil war print and 1 1/2 yards of the light beige fabric for backgrounds for applique most likely!!! Then we went to JoAnn's and this is the goodies I got there--
got the two layer plastic box--buttons were on for 1/2 price so got some of them and I found about 6-7 cute small trims on sale and I have a couple projects coming up that I may need them for---then we got another 10% off the total order--so it was a good day for some traveling and sales!!!!!!
I do feel I need to share some "sad" news though--Yesterday in the morning we learned that one of our residents here was killed in a car accident up near Marthra's Vineyard she was on the way to visit with her daughter--so one just never knows does one--so be sure to tell your loved ones every day that you love them--even if you are "mad or upset" with them--OK????
we are having a real cold spell here--our wind chill factor is about 15 below zero out by mornings ----- COLD!!!!!
